  3. Agree to, complete, and sign a waiver form for each visitor (Spanish version available, too).
  4. Deliver signed waivers to Station Manager prior to or upon arrival.

Station facilities are available year round. Winter programs present more of an access challenge as the two miles of road from Hwy 89 to the station are sometimes not plowed in winter. CalTrans plows parking areas just off of Hwy 89 and snowmobiles, skis and other forms of snow travel equipment are used to access the station.

Winter lodging capacity is reduced to about 25 persons, with significantly higher day-use capacity. Facility use is scheduled on a space available basis. Current use includes UC & other college courses, agency group training, seminars, retreats and K-12 classes.

A variety of field and laboratory equipment is available, including extensive environmental monitoring sites throughout the basin.

Additional on-site educational aids include:

  • Line electricity
  • T-1 internet service
  • Computer & GIS lab (10-PCs, 1-Mac. printers, plotter, scanner)
  • TV, VCR, sound system, screens, white boards
  • Projectors (LCD, slides, overhead)
